Speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph after his side smashed MK Dons 4-0 on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has said that the best is yet to come from his side.
Peterborough United picked up their first win of the season last Saturday, dispatching a struggling Southend United, and, they have followed up on their first three points in scintillating fashion. The Posh defeated MK Dons 4-0 away from home in front of over 2,000 travelling fans to seal back-to-back wins.
Marcus Maddison starred once again, smashing home the Goal of the Day from 30-yards out before swinging in for Ivan Toney to bag his fourth goal of the season. Record signing Mo Eisa netted a brace either side of half-time to ensure Posh took all three points back to London Road.
And despite the comfortable nature of Posh’s 4-0 win, manager Darren Ferguson has said that there is still more to come from who side, who face Sunderland in an early-season clash between two sides tipped to be up there come the end of the season.
“That was a complete performance,” Ferguson said to the Peterborough Telegraph.
“There are not many games when you just sit back and enjoy watching your team play.
“We were ruthless in the first half and earned the right to play with control and precision after the break. We were very good. We played well with the ball and defended well without it. We scored some great goals and we were very professional. And there is more to come from this group. There were still little bits I wasn’t happy with.
“We dominated from the first whistle, but we had become a little bit sloppy before we took the lead with a brilliant goal from Marcus. We are so lucky to still have him at this club. He is a special talent. He is intelligent tactically as well as having loads of quality.
“We fancied we could do well today. We knew Ivan Toney would win 90% of his headers against this team. Mo took his goals well and he is now full of confidence. His partnership with Ivan is looking good now. We have always known we have goals in this team so I was just as pleased with the clean sheet. We will usually win if we manage that.”
